Arnold spent many years working for the Liberty Public Schools where he was the light to so many children. He was heavily involved in the community throughout his life. From coaching Judo at his own Judo club, as well as other clubs, coaching his daughters T-ball. Lending a listening ear or shoulder to any child that needed a friend, he was a role model to so many whose lives he crossed. His favorite place to be was in the water, whether that be floating on the boat down the river or tubing and skiing on the lake with friends and family.
